Read today that 3 more names for "All Stars" have been revealed; Randy Orton, Ultimate Warriror... and Hulk Hogan.

What's this about Goliath from Gladiators duffing up John Cena and joining Nexus?

Really need to get Sky back and start watching properly again. Been watching some old DVDs (from around 2003/4 ish) and "WWE Confidential" (Montreal Screwjob etc), got the taste for it again.

Undertaker apparently ready to "pass the torch". Wonder if his last WM appearance will be the end of the streak? Personally I think he should remain undefeated at WM, he's already guaranteed a place in the Hall of Fame. Maybe win a title, then the usual >boom< lights out, back on to reveal no Undertaker, title belt lying in the ring. Set up for a tournament to find a new champion at the following PPV?

Glad to see this is coming out on the PS2, so I will be able to buy it for one of my consoles at least, surely must be one of the last games probably to ever come out on PS2 if it is.
It is?

Hope all stars has a CAW mode.
Id make Big Daddy and my own champion Angus

Yeah he started on Monday.
Not seen much of him

You dont need sky. I watch them all via downloads (direct of torrent).
Taker is getting on and seems to get injured in every match.
Would like closer to the Taker/Kane thing. There is no title to change hands

Tna Impact is currently free to watch on TNA in demand, as they currently have no British TV home since Bravo shut down.

TNA is coming to Challenge TV as of the 1st Feb, they are going to do a catch up of all episodes since it was last seen on Bravo.

TNA Impact will be shown on Challenge the tuesday after
TNA PPVs will be shown the following Wednesday
TNA Explosion will also be shown on the channel.

And its being made a Freeview channel! :D So TNA will be free to the UK, a great move.

My only question is I don't have a freeview box, just a sky box (not a subscriber anymore) whilst I get a fair few free channels, I don't get certain freeview things like Dave etc. So fingers crossed Challenge will be a free to air on Sky as well! If not I am going to have to obtain a freeview box somewhere.

Never knew that Bravo had gone..> I see TNA left 'Flair' in England as he(Flair) - refused to get on the Plane!! Flairs a piece of Garbage and can't see Steiner going back to TNA any time soon as he hates Flair.. I listened to Steiners shoot interview, so funny, "His crooked yellow teeth"

1992 aside, I'm calling that the best Royal Rumble match ever. Brilliantly paced, many superb individual performances (Punk, Morrison, Bryan, Cena, to name a few), some genuinely surprising comebacks and entrants, and the right man was given the win in the end.

That ending was something else. My mate and I were going absolutely scripto - but in the best possible, wake-his-Mum-up-at-4am kind of way. Absolutely loved that whole match.

I seriously shouted "COBRA!! THROW HIM OUT" at the Santio bit.
40 stars and it still felt a bit like they where adding filer by using stars they already had wrestle

That thing Morrison did was awesome

Mick Foley said something on it over Twitter
"Morrison stole that move from me...ok, maybe not. Wow!"
"OK, maybe Morrison didn't steal that move from me, but Husky DID steal my abs and obliques."
